I'm Waiting On 45 Pounts by K. A. Barson

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!

This week I chose...
Title: 45 pounds
Author: K.A. Barson
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Release Date: July 11th 2013

Summary from Goodreads:
Here are the numbers of Ann Galardi’s life:

She is 16.
And a size 17.
Her perfect mother is a size 6.
Her Aunt Jackie is getting married in 10 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in 2 1/2 months.

Welcome to the world of infomercial diet plans, wedding dance lessons, embarrassing run-ins with the cutest guy Ann’s ever seen—-and some surprises about her NOT-so-perfect mother. 

And there’s one more thing. It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin-—no matter how you add it up!

This comes out tomorrow and I so far I have read fantastic reviews about this one, so I can't wait!

What are you waiting on?

  4. OOOOOOO, it comes out tomorrow! I actually hadn't given this book much thought. But, if I see it at my local public library, I'll pick it up! Hope you get to read it soon! :)

  5. This does sound like a good book. It makes me think of a fabulous book I read a few years ago called Fat Cat, I think it was.

  6. This does look good. I've had my eye on it for a long time now. Thanks for visiting my WoW.
